Moisture is the number one enemy for builders, as it causes various kinds of damage, as well as the destruction of supporting structures.
Moisture can accelerate or cause processes such as electrochemical corrosion. They damage metals and parts of equipment and ducts, the frame of the building, reinforcement reinforced concrete structures and much more.
Moisture causes chemical damage to certain materials: gypsum trim, tiles on the ceiling, wood materials and so on. Under the influence of moisture, concrete, masonry can be destroyed. This problem is especially acute during thawing or freezing.
Even architectural details can change their colors, that is, fading, spots may appear on them and so on.
Materials can change in volumes, that is, some may swell, others are crumpled, and others are shrinking.
As a result, building structures will look much worse, cracks will perform. As a result, cases of deformation of structures are not excluded.
Often damage is biological in nature, that is, mold begins to form, plants appear or, even worse, dust mites.
Solving problems related to moisture
How to solve the problems that excessive moisture? After all, if you can’t fight her in any way, then it can lead to the destruction of the construction structure.
What are the causes of moisture?
It is worth starting by finding a source of moisture release, eliminate all possible ways to transfer moisture, calculate the driving force of moisture propagation, and also choose building materials that are unleasant by moisture effects.
Of course, based on logical considerations, if you eliminate any of the above reasons, then no problems with the moisture capacity will arise. In practice, it turns out that absolutely all sources of moisture is not possible to eliminate. It is also impossible to build a building that turns out to be moisture resistant one hundred percent.
Therefore, it is worth paying attention to what is the potential to moisturize. If you know it, then you can at least make minimal all the negative consequences of moisture effects.
In the process of designing buildings, as well as air conditioning systems, it is necessary to use the so -called practical approach, that is, to select such construction methods and such materials that will guarantee a minimum risk as a result of problems associated with moisture -transmitted.
